Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

into the light

This is only one main branch
of a very large Buttonwood tree.
The tree’s stature is the sign
of its obvious success
in reaching for the light.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.”
- Proverbs 3:5,6 NIV

"I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life."
- Jesus Christ
(John 8:12 NIV)

“How is one to live a moral
and compassionate existence
when one finds darkness
not only in one's culture
but within oneself?
There are simply no answers
to some of the great pressing questions.
You continue to live them out,
making your life a worthy expression
of leaning into the light.”
- Barry Lopez
(Arctic Dreams)
